This plugin helped me write better content. I recommend it!
By , for WP 3.6

I've used Squirrly before, but wasn't very impressed with it, to be honest. It didn't bring much value. But yesterday I received an email that said there was a new Squirrly and that it was focused on content, not on SEO settings. It really did the trick for me. I love having the possibility to optimize my content with the new squirrly and measure the success of m y new articles.

Copycat of Scribe, SEO Pressor, Yoast. Expensive. Fake Plugin with TRIAL!
By , for WP 3.6

Downloaded your plugin and gave it a fair try. Disappointed upon signing up that it's a trial and it is expensive to purchase! Regardless, I gave it a try.

More disappointment, it's not any better than what I am already using. Scribe, though expensive, does so much in content analysis you are far from it. Yoast is so well done, you copied their features and attacked them in the open, not a good business reputation on you. Seopressor is so affordable, great support, nice UI and I can see how much you have copied from seo pressor too!

Even worse, at some point you emailed me offering 50% discount cos I did not purchase. How tricky is your marketing! What if I bought at full price!

So, I deactivated and deleted. Please REMOVE all my SITE DATA. You have no right to keep my data or email me more!

Quite a useless piece of spam plugin in WordPress, copy others features, disguising yourself as a free plugin but charge expensively, spam the hell out of twitter to get attention, attacked Yoast openly, all bad stuffs.

Avoid, don't download.

UPDATE: According to WordPress's policy: http://wordpress.org/plugins/about/guidelines/

5. Trialware is not allowed in the repository. It's perfectly fine to attempt to upsell the user on other products and features, but a) not in an annoying manner and b) not by disabling functionality after some time period.

Mods, is Squirrly allowed here?

Couldn't get plugin to work but customer service awesome
By , for WP 3.5.2

I purchased this plugin on the recommendation of a friend who swears by it.

I installed it and immediately saw the benefits, but soon after it crashed my site.

I spent alot of time on the computer with GoDaddy, who was essentially useless, and with Calin at Squirly customer support, who was terrific.

He worked the problem as best he could and gave me a prompt refund.

So although the plugin was incompatible with my site...my buddy still loves it...they are getting the stars they did in this review due to their support.

Not free and terrible
By , for WP 3.5.2

This "trial" plugin should not be in the WordPress repository. A 14 day trial for a $20 a month plugin. These guys are kidding themselves if they think this plugin is worth $240 a year. IT is terrible compared to other plugins released that do the same thing for 1/10th of the price.

I'm fine with the freemium and donation plugins, what I'm not fine with is bad devs who don't explain it is a trial until you install it on your site, after deciding you don't want it and deleting the plugin is leaves junk and database entries behind to clutter-up your back-end and slow down your site, they also continue to spam you with junk mail.

You guys need to Understand this is WordPress NOT Windows. You seem a bit confused there and this is typical Windows Developer mentality. Just in it for the $$$

Kinda confusing

Didn't really understand what it adds. Not bad necessarily but not that beneficial also.

Can't I give Zero stars?
By , for WP 3.5.1

When I installed this plug-in, I just took it as any other SEO plug-in. But, it is more than that, for sure. But, all this I got it for a 14 days trial. The options this provides are more confusing than helping. If you add a tag to your post, there is no way you can remove that tag, but, to uninstall the plug-in.
Stay away from such Luxurious-items guys which are just meant for show-off.

Great job with the Plugin and great job winning at the BkVF

Guys, I saw your presentation at the Balkan Venture Forum this Tuesday. I tried the plugin to see really how good you managed to make it and then I even saw you featured on ManageWP.com

I think you're doing great. Thank you for the tool and congratulations on winning the best presentation award. The jury liked your company.

Cheers,
John big G :)) (remember me from the Hello app of Evernote)

Would you learn to write code & remove bloatware
By , for WP 3.5.1

I gave this plug-in a try. For a week, and it was very apparent within the 1st two days this was horrible compared to what I'm using and what I had been using.
A whoule combination of a real seo plug-in WordPress SEO plugin matched with scribe the Seo/content plug-in.
I know you're going to say scribe costs more well maybe so however you get what you pay for copy blogger is doing extremely well using scribe in fact them, and SEOmoz writes the book on this stuff.

This plug-in tries to be everything along with the toaster and is great for people who don't know what they're doing at all they actually believe that the so-called analytics in this plug-in that tell you when Google has indexed the site is because the plug-in made happen. That's not the way it works. It should not be taking content that gives back links to who knows with those photos and plagiarism tool.
Honestly if anyone tried to write for a living and use this and the person paying checked you would lose a lot of credibility.

The live assistant. is a lot of baloney to you truly believe it is a good thing to get your site constantly pinged by this company?. This is a stupid Google ad words tool with a really ugly interface to go with it and a favicon generator on top.

The idea of a seo plug-in is to Blend in without screaming on the page in bright colors for no reason in addition be on the cutting-edge. I'm not talking about copying existing software and an all-in-one junk plug-in I don't mean to be harsh, but that's what I see. You stole from scribe you tried to steal from Yoast, and you made a Frankenstein that gets people who don't know anything about search engine optimization to blog, and they see that by blogging they have in fact gained momentum. Well you don't need your plug-in for that and you don't have an analytics at in that allows parameters something any seo worth their salt would want.

I'm sorry I've had such a negative experience, but you implied this plug-in was wonderful and frankly it's a monster just you try to remove. This plug-in will possibly break your theme if you try to remove it. You all to get constant errors afterwards. It makes me mad to get under way to have your old plug-in error, plug-ins that should have been deleted, and because however, I see constant reminders I am reminding you to write better code. I don't mean to be so harsh, but it had to be said. most people don't understand how much the code that a plug-in is built from matters, and this is a poorly coded plugin.
